American Hero

                                                                American Hero

Hi everybody

Today's card is an early 4th of July card; however, it would also have been very suitable for Memorial Day.  The stamp set I used is called American Hero by Verve and it is one of my favorites when it comes to patriotic cards. I am entering this card in Karen't Sweet Sunday Sketch (see it here) and also for the red, white and blue challenge over at the Paper players.  See it here

The papers I used were whisper white, real red, and night of navy.  The dsp is from the new Maritime series from Stampin Up.  The little strip of stars is a die cut from Life is a Circus by Taylored Expressions and the ribbon is from my stash.  The daisies are from a new die cut I got recently from the weekly deals at SU called Blossom Petals (now retired). Love getting a good deal, don't you?  Finally I added a couple of red rhinestones to get the sparkles going.

This was a fun and easy card.  Sometimes it just all goes together without effort and then there are the "other" times.  This one worked for me... I hope you like it too.

I'll see you tomorrow?  Thanks for the visit.



  1. This is brilliant! I adore the big flower medallion and the ribbon - wow! Fabulous job.

  2. This is wonderful! That starry diecut is my favorite part! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week!

  3. The pop of ribbon is fabulous against your die cut flowers. Fabulous card. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
